Download PDF by Alexander Klugmann: Sprachwandel im Internet (German Edition)

By Alexander Klugmann

Forschungsarbeit aus dem Jahr 2009 im Fachbereich Sprachwissenschaft / Sprachforschung (fachübergreifend), word: 2,0, Bergische Universität Wuppertal, Veranstaltung: Hauptseminar: Tendenzen des Gegenwartsdeutschen, Sprache: Deutsch, summary: In den letzten Jahren wurde häufig vor dem „Verfall der Sprache“ im web gewarnt. Laut einer Umfrage des deutschen Sprachrats im Juni des vorletzten Jahres, fürchten ihn sixty five% der Deutschen. Viele sehen die Ursache, in der Kommunikation über electronic mail und SMS. Der kultur- und medienpolitische Sprecher der FDP-Bundestagfraktion, Christoph Waitz, warnte nach der Bekanntgabe der Umfrage sogar: "Wenn dem Sprachverfall nicht endlich Einhalt geboten wird, dann gibt es bald keine allgemeinverständliche deutsche Sprache mehr." Schon die Begriffe "Chatten" und "Simsen" seien ein "Paradebeispiel für die Verschluderung unserer Sprache"
In der Sprachwissenschaft dagegen, ist der Sprachverfall, wie er in den Medien dargestellt wird, längst kein Thema mehr, da vom „Verfall“ der Sprache, nur die zeitgenössische model bedroht ist, deren Ursprünge weit in die Geschichte zurückreichen.
Diese Hausarbeit untersucht, ob und wie ein Sprachwandel durch das net stattfindet und setzt den Schwerpunkt dabei auf Internetforen, in denen die Kommunikation anderen Regeln unterliegt als im vorwiegend untersuchten Chat. Mein Ziel battle, die Variationen des Internetjargons zu dokumentieren und zu verdeutlichen, dass die Ausprägungen des Internetjargons so zahlreich sind wie seine Benutzer.

By Ros Eng,Douglas Easton,Bruce Ponder,Charis Eng

during the last twenty years it has turn into more and more obvious that the prevalence of many cancers may have an inherited foundation. This e-book examines the foundations underlying genetic predisposition to melanoma and should be proper to practicing oncologists, geneticists and different execs drawn to this quickly increasing box. assurance is accomplished, taking the reader from an advent to genetic predisposition, via a dialogue of the molecular biology and statistical concepts interested by the id and characterisation of predisposition genes, to a attention of heritable melanoma syndromes, and encompasses either infrequent and customary cancers. The textual content additionally encompasses a dialogue of melanoma hazard review, genetic counselling matters, genetic screening and melanoma administration recommendations, and a attention of the linked moral and mental issues.

Building at the attractiveness of the former variation, and to mirror the speedy advances within the box considering the fact that its e-book, the contents of the second one version were completely up-to-date and comprise dialogue of many newly pointed out melanoma genes. particularly, the ebook positive factors new chapters further at the organic foundation of melanoma predisposition, population-based reviews of susceptibility, and review of administration innovations for people at elevated melanoma risk.

Erklärungshandlungen in populärwissenschaftlicher Literatur - download pdf or read online

By Hanna Wilkes

Studienarbeit aus dem Jahr 2013 im Fachbereich Sprachwissenschaft / Sprachforschung (fachübergreifend), be aware: 2,3, Universität Hildesheim (Stiftung), Sprache: Deutsch, summary: „Dabei handelt es sich zunächst nur um die Tensoren bezüglich linearer orthogonaler Transformation, wie sie den Übergang von einem kartesischen method zu einem anderen desselben Bezugraumes beherrschen. Da die Gesetze im ganzen von der Dimensionszahl unabhängig sind, wollen wir letztere vorläufig unbestimmt lassen (Dimensionszahl n).“

Dieses Zitat, entnommen aus Albert Einsteins Grundzüge der Relativitätstheorie, ist für Leser, die keine Experten auf dem Gebiet der Physik sind, kaum zu verstehen. Ein Grund für dieses Verständnisproblem sind die zahlreichen Fachwörter, die verwendet werden. Doch wozu sind Fachwörter überhaupt notwendig? Oft werden sie als exakter, eindeutiger und kontextunabhängiger als gemeinsprachliche Wörter beschrieben.

Jürg Niederhauser sagt hingegen, dass die „kommunikative Eindeutigkeit“, die ein Fachwort innerhalb einer Fachsprache besitzt, ausschlaggebend für dessen Verwendung sei. Eine weitere Funktion von Fachwörtern ist es, Texte als fachliche oder wissenschaftliche Texte zu markieren. Sie fungieren somit, gewollt oder ungewollt, als eine artwork Abgrenzung zwischen Experten und Nicht-Experten.

Soll diese Abgrenzung nicht stattfinden, muss auf andere Weise mit Fachwörtern umgegangen werden, sodass sie für Nicht-Experten kein Verständnisproblem darstellen. Dies geschieht zum Beispiel in populärwissenschaftlichen Texten. Wie genau mit Fachbegriffen in solchen Texten umgegangen wird und welche Erklärungshandlungen dort Anwendung finden, ist das Thema dieser Hausarbeit.
Dazu wird zunächst erläutert, used to be unter Populärwissenschaft zu verstehen ist. Anschließend folgt der Hauptteil dieser Arbeit, in dem Erklärungshandlungen in populärwissenschaftlichen Texten beschrieben werden. Besondere Aufmerksamkeit richtet sich hier auf die Doppelterminologie und welche Möglichkeiten diese bietet. Daran schließt sich ein Beispieltext an, der auf die zuvor erläuterten Erklärungshandlungen analysiert wird. Am Schluss steht ein Fazit, in dem sämtliche Ergebnisse knapp zusammengefasst und interpretiert werden.
